Ultegra ST-R8000 STI
The new Ultegra dual control lever allows for more accurate and precise shifting. It has a greater reach for adjusting your break and gear levers. The redesigned internal shifting unit ensures a quick and intuitive rear-shifting operation. When paired with the new FD-R8000 front derailleur, your front shifting will be even lighter.
Ultegra BR-R8000 brake caliper
The new BR-R8000 offers a very sleek design, with narrower gaps between the arms. The wider clearance makes it compatible with larger tire sizes such as 28C. The stabilizer between the axles reduces deformation and improves the braking efficiency, offering a clear contact feeling with balanced rigidity, weight and stopping power.
Ultegra FC-R8000 crankset
The Hollowtech II crankset will help you transfer more power into speed. It offers weight reduction without sacrificing stiffness. It enables a wide range of gear combinations to suit your every need. Paired with the new front and rear derailleurs, your shifts will be so fast and reliable you’ll almost question whether they happened at all! The beautifully shaped crankarm, trickled down from Dura-Ace, is a tribute to the aesthetics of your bike.
The cranksets with 52-36 and 53-39 teeth are weight-saving thanks to Hollowglide technology and the outer chainring made of aluminium/CFRP.
Ultegra FD-R8000 front derailleur
The FD-R8000 front derailleur provides for ultra-smooth shifting. It flawlessly moves your chain up and down, without extra effort. The result is a shift that is precise and direct, with no delay.
Ultegra RD-R8000-SS rear derailleur – short / Ultegra RD-R8000-GS rear derailleur – middle
The RD-R8000 rear derailleur creates a reduction in shifting effort at the lever, at the same time remaining sure, quick and precise. Due to the integrated Shadow RD Technology with its race-proven, low profile design, the derailleur is more compact and fits closer to the frame, ensuring less damage in a crash.
The short rear derailleur is suitable for cassettes with 11-28 teeth.
The middle rear derailleur is suitable for cassettes with 11-32 teeth.
Ultegra CS-R8000 cassette
Superior choice is at the heart of Shimano’s rider-tuned philosophy. With gear combinations 11-28T and 11-32T you’ll have all the options you need to tune your ride.
Please note: The cassette with the sprocket ratio 11-32 is only compatible to the Shimano GS rear derailleurs with medium cage!
Shimano 11-speed chain with SIL-TEC surface. Also suitable for e-bike.
SIL-TEC is an advanced surface plating technology to increase both performance and durability. It adds a low friction surface treatment that runs smoother and lasts longer.
